Date searching

Dates may be used as a search term if Intelligent Date Handling has been set in the index options.

With Intelligent Date Handling set, dates within your index will be found regardless of the way in which they are expressed in the documents. For example "February 10 2001", "2/10/01" and "Saturday, February 10, 2001" are all read as the same thing by Perceptive Search. Relative or implied dates such as "March this year" or "two weeks from next Thursday" are not supported.

Date searching operators are:



Search for documents containing dates falling after a specific date.




Search for documents containing dates falling before a specific date.




Search for a range between and including the specified dates.
